Now it's 3-Nugget Gully

Yo All...The last week has been a little bit frustrating, nugget-wise...I've been finding a few meteorites, but it's the gold that puts the aur in my arrrrrgh...!...Today I went back to a little---and I mean tiny--- gully system that I found two nuggets in back in February...The gully has no targets that aren't gold...But the bedock is extremely hot, you just can't swing over it anywhere with out a fairly loud signal from the ground and it's darn near impossible to balance the ground out....I pretty much had given up on the area, but today I just needed to beep and had a theory that some ground that was sandwiched in between caliche layers might carry something, because it had rounded river rock cemented in a layer ... I beeped all the exposed parts of that sandwich without any target...Then I decided to just inch up the main gully, which had verticle sidewalls and the bottom of the gully only about 18" wide...Putting up with the ground noise was kinda frustrating, but I was able to balance my ol' Baboo sd2100 even despite that I'd developed a short in my 14" E NF mono coil and it kept screaming at me like a $2 red headed whore on saturday night with every swing...Anyhow, a long winded way to say that I got a faint signal on a tight inside bend that sounded soft and deep...But, actually, it was only about 8" deep lying on top of some really hot bedrock..Nice little 2 gram cuttie...Nice way to break a week long gold skunk...Here's my usual excessive photo display... :innocent0002: Cheers, Yer Unc in the Dubyah

WTG Ron. I'm glad you shook the skunk. It gives me hope for the week. I've put 32 hours this week so far in the nail patch and nothing but more nails. Tomorrow I'm starting early and staying late. Hope your good fortune rubs off on me. AL. C
